Lena Dunham And Kirsten Dunst are are two of the celebrities who bravely participated in Miranda July’s latest project: sharing celebrities’ personal emails about finances. Dunham reveals that she was looking to purchase a couch from Sweden, but backed out. From Eonline:

The email, dated April 2, 2013, shows her assistant explaining the cost of the Josef Frank-designed Liljevalch Sofa.

“The price to make the Liljevalch Sofa is $14,878.93 plus the fabric which is $283.56 per meter and we would need 20 meters of fabric. So the entire cost of the couch would be $20,554.39,’ the email explained.

“Shipping the sofa: It will take between 16 and 20 weeks to make and ship the sofa to us (from Sweden and will cost $3,080.85, plus $400.00 in customs charges. whenever you pick the fabric I can order for you! :) xox”

Dunham responded: “decided it’s just too expensive:)”

Good, because I was getting so ready to hate her for buying a $20k couch. Kirsten Dunst, America’s Edgiest Sweetheart, shared some boring ass email about her car:

My friend Jessica is buying my car for 7,000 I gave her your info for payments. She’s going to pay 2,000 up front and then pay the rest as fast as she can. Don’t know the paper work involved, but Warren mentioned he had something. Thanks, Kirsten.

So what exactly is this for? Writer and film director Miranda July is doing an art project titled “We Think Alone.”

July’s goal for the project was to give the public a glimpse inside the lives of some of Hollywood’s biggest names by releasing their private emails. July said, “how they comport themselves in email is so intimate, almost obscene — a glimpse of them from their own point of view.”

Okay but I wish they shared the emails we really want to see, the ones that aren’t so humble.
